Chalk Talk: Starting Early: the Key to Finding Your Calling
Starting as high-school freshmen or even younger, students should take “interest inventories” to start discovering their strengths and interests. Many good inventories can be found online, often through a state’s workforce or employment services branch. These surveys allow the user to select skills they have or would like to have, the working conditions they might like (indoors or outdoors, dealing with people or working alone, etc), and the interests they have—reading, taking things apart, creating. A compilation of the answers will result in ideas for careers that encapsulate what opportunities might best fit the survey-taker.
